    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Rodale in November 2016.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume and cover letter on their career website in November. A recruiter contacted me a few days later through email to set up a phone interview. She was nice and asked standard questions about my prior roles and my personality. I felt I performed OK with a few bumps when I got nervous, but overall I think I was able to deliver my passion for the publication as well as my qualifications. Unfortunately, after the interview, it was dead silent and I figured I wouldn't be moving forward with the edit tests whether because I didn't perform well with the recruiter or the hiring manger didn't like my application--who knows. Best of luck to you all though!
